I found this wonderful site last night and joined immediately. A big thank you to you all for describing all your initial fears and pain - at last I know I am normal.
I have been in pain since June 12 when I had my Medtronic PM inserted. Glue was put on my wound and it would not move until after a month and the pain is less intense. I now have soreness where the PM is, at the side near the shoulder and the shoulder itself. The sorenes is also all across the collar bone and across my chest. I mentioned this to the Cardio Dr. and he says it could be scar tissue.
I have all the female issues of the breast being too heavy and the strapless bra necessity. I too walk with one hand under the left breast.
I now intend to seek physical therapy in the hopes of getting the correct exercises. I know it takes time and I am a very poor healer for the most part. But thank you all for the messages you have posted to each other and when I have been to physical therapy I will write again. In the meantime please keep sending your messages, they are the best cure, not that I want to see you all in pain but that you try and things improve.
